    996 Oil Pressure Gauge

    Need Help! went to dealer and had oil seperator replaced for $1800. They told me it would clear the problem of my oil pressure gauge from not moving. I get the car back and the oil pressure gauge still does not function correctly, it always stays above "5" and only moves back down when the car is turned off. I asked the dealer why they chose to replace the oil seperator and they told me because the technician believed it was the problem causing the oil press gauge not functioning. Dealer told me they do not no what the problem is and wont refund me my money due to the fact that they said they fixed the oil temp. Anyone know what might be the cause of this. The oil level read out also does not function, it reads out oil level at a dead cold start and only takes 3 seconds? this does not seem normal because car has not even been driven. Next problem i have is the every other start up, you need to gas the car as you turn the key or else it wont start. Dealer also told me they do not know what is wrong and can find no codes though PST2. Any help would be great.

    Sounds like you need to bring it to a different dealer or garage.

    Sounds like the oil pressure gauge has become "ungrounded". A poor ground is one cause of that behavior.

    Re: 996 Oil Pressure Gauge

    I just went through the same experience. The oil pressure gauge would jump up and down and stayed down after driving my 2002 C4 for about 10-15 min. My dealer had no time to fix it ("flat-bed the car to us and we will look at it in a few weeks; no loaners or rental car"). So I went to a different dealer who will get my business on my next purchase.

    After 1.5 hrs of diagnosis, they wanted to replace the instrument panel ($2k). Then the master tech looked at it again and found that the pressure sensor had to be replaced. Because it took them nearly 3 hrs to find the problem, the total was about $400. They told me that the problem is rare and difficult to diagnose.

    It seems that your tech wasn't experienced enough....
